You understand that the securities posted on the Services or displayed in the actual portfolios may be held by affiliates of BlackHedge and that the mention of a security on the Services should not be considered a recommendation to purchase or sell that particular security.From time to time, reference may be made on our Services to articles and opinions published by others. These references may be selective, may reference only a portion of an article or opinion, and may not be current.
